Bright sunset-coloured bedroom
While they're there to help you avoid decorating disaster, certain colour 'rules' actually make no sense. We're here to show you why, starting with this bold bedroom in a spectrum of sunset shades.

The reality: These tones are found together in nature, meaning they do complement each other beautifully. The trick is to use big blocks of plain colour, rather than a mixture of patterns.
